Avalon Home Inspection Services

An Avalon Home Inspection meets or exceeds the standards laid out by InterNACHI and ASHI; two highly respected industry organizations. We use state-of-the-art equipment to assist us whenever necessary, including pole cameras, carbon monoxide detectors, and moisture meters.

Unlike many inspectors, we make use of thermal imaging at every inspection. This infrared technology allows us to “see” inaccessible areas, such as beneath flooring and inside walls. Thermal imaging can help us detect signs of water intrusion, heat loss, pest infestations and other hidden defects that may warrant further investigation.

Buyer’s Home Inspection

Our signature service is a non-invasive, visual evaluation of the following:

  • Roof (including all penetrations, flashing and drainage system)
  • Exterior cladding and structure
  • Decks, patios, porches and walkways
  • Attic, including insulation and ventilation
  • Electrical system
  • Plumbing system
  • HVAC system
  • Interior structure (including doors and windows)
  • Built-in appliances
  • Fireplaces & wood stoves
  • Basement and/or crawlspace
  • Attached and detached garages (including door openers)
  • Safety hazards

We also offer these additional services:

Seller’s (Pre-Listing) Home Inspection

___________

Increasingly, sellers are opting to order an inspection before they list their home for sale. Our seller’s home inspection will assist you in setting the right price for your home. It also helps you decide—in your own time—what improvements or repairs you wish to make before putting your home on the market. Perhaps most importantly, this service can help you avoid late-stage surprises that could jeopardize your sale after you’ve accepted an offer.

Builder’s Warranty “11th Month” Inspections

___________

New homes usually come with a one-year warranty from the builder. This crucial 11th-month inspection will help to ensure any covered defects in materials or workmanship are discovered before they become your financial responsibility.

Commercial Property Inspections

___________

Protect your investment by knowing everything you possibly can about your commercial building or property, such as retail spaces and restaurants. Your inspection report may be a great help in the case of any tenant disputes over damage.

Termite and Other WDO Inspection

___________

Carpenter ants, termites and other wood-destroying organisms (WDOs) can cause irreparable damage to your home. Catching an infestation early can save you from costly repairs, expensive rebuilding or even structural collapse.

Water Testing

___________

Is your water safe to drink and cook with? We can test for lead and other heavy metals, as well as bacterial contamination. Should we find unhealthy levels of contaminants, we can recommend ways to ensure your water is clean and safe.

Re-Inspections

___________

In some cases, it’s immediately evident whether the seller has corrected a defect. In other situations, it may be wise to have a portion of the home re-inspected to ensure proper repairs have been made.

Mold Testing

___________

All homes have mold. Certain types of mold, or high concentrations of mold, can be hazardous to your family’s health. Mold testing—and taking steps to combat its presence—can be an essential step in ensuring your new home is safe. This can be particularly important for the very young, the very old and people with allergies or other chronic conditions.

Radon Testing

___________

Radon, an odorless and colorless gas, is a leading cause of lung cancer. It seeps up from the ground and, since it’s heavier than air, tends to collect in the lowest level of a building. The good news is that if we detect radon, there are simple steps you can take to abate its presence.

New Construction and Construction Phase Inspections

___________

Building a home is a great undertaking involving multiple work crews. Even newly built homes often have defects that can go unnoticed at first glance. Additionally, many lenders require an inspection at certain stages before they will finance the next phase. Our inspectors know what to look for in partially finished and newly constructed dwellings.
